In ancient times all journeys were made on foot or by animal-drawn carts. With the arrival of the four-stroke engine, the world of transport was revolutionised, allowing the creation of automobiles and other inventions. Today we will explain how the four-stroke engine works.
A four-stroke engine sis based on the use of a series of pistons that transmit motion to the crankshaft.. The name given to this type of engine is due to the fact that each piston has four different strokes:
- Introduction of the fuel mixed with air into the piston chamber.
- Compression of the fuel in the chamber.
- Explosion of the fuel by the spark produced by the spark plug.
- Release of the gases produced in the reaction.
Normally today's engines usually have 4 cylinders in which these four tenses are continuously repeated.
Here we offer you a video with detailed explanation of how a four-stroke engine works.
